    Dennis Ritchie

    I have just learned that Dennis Ritchie has passed away: http://www.electronista.com/articles/11/10...t.with.illness/ http://en.wikipedia..../Dennis_Ritchie Really sad about this one. He did far, far more for the computer industry than Steve Jobs, IMHO but his passing almost certainly won't get anywhere near the media attention. I wouldn't have the job I hold today if it weren't for his pioneering work co-developing Unix with Ken Thompson. RIP to one of the real fathers of the computer revolution. Not an exaggeration to say that I personally consider this the most significant death of the year thus far due to his impact on computing.

    Sid Waddell

    Wish it'd been Waddell and the tongue had to go, can't stand the bloke. The ultimate Marmite commentator, along with Alan Green (who I also can't stand). Thinking about it, nobody likes Alan Green do they. Freddie Flintoff was guest commentating on the darts yesterday. Enthusiastic, but pretty shit. Unlike Harry, I quite like Sid Waddell. However, the news that he's been diagnosed with bowel cancer may be of interest.

    Gary Carter

    Former Mets HoF catcher Gary Carter has "inoperable brain cancer". I think he'd get a UK obit. Either way, he's a dead man walking (to first base).

    Lauren Bacall

    A couple of days after Liz Taylor's dead i started wondering how other classic Hollywood actresses were doing health-wise. One of these actresses being Lauren Bacall (The Big Sleep). So i did a quick (and shallow) search on the internet just to discover that there is little to no news on her. So my next step would have been to post a question like "Does anyone know how Lauren Bacall is doing these days?" on her thread in the hope that the more trained celebrity health-trackers (like DevonDeathTrip or Rotten Ali) could tell me... well, how she is doing these days. But then i found out to my disapointment that Lauren Bacall didn't have her own thread. So after some consideration, I decided to do something what may bring forth some angry posts, I posted a new thread. I did consider two things before making such a drastic decision. 1) Is she famous enough: Yes 2) Is she old/frail/sick enough: She's surdenly old enough to atleast get some attention in the upcoming years (turning 87 this year). I don't know if she's frail/sick because i really couldn't find that much news about her (which must be a sign on it's own). So.......Does anyone know how Lauren Bacall is doing these days?

    Cora Vaucaire

    <disclaimer>I think this will be a very quiet thread but what the hell? </disclaimer> I have just been listening to the *absolutely lovely* French singer, Cora Vaucaire. and I decided to look her up. To my surprise, she is still alive, having been born in 1921. Do any French speaking Death Listers have more info on her health? For those who want to listen to Madam Vaucaire at her best, I recommend her version of Prevert's song, "Demons et Merveilles." (Just trying to add a touch of class to DeathList!)

    Aretha Franklin

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Soul singer Aretha Franklin on Thursday canceled all of her appearances until next spring on the orders of doctors. Franklin, 68, the "Queen of Soul" who famously sang at President Barack Obama's inauguration in 2009, pulled out of all concert and personal appearances "at the insistence" of her doctors until May 2011, her publicist said. The decision comes on the heels of the multiple Grammy winner being released from a Detroit hospital on October 30th, where she had admitted for undisclosed reasons. "The award winning songstress sends her sincerest apologies to her loyal followers and colleagues for the canceled shows," the statement read. "Ms. Franklin is resting comfortably at home, but is very anxious to get back on the road to perform for her countless fans around the world," it added. In August, Franklin canceled two concerts after suffering a fall that left her with a couple of broken ribs...
